's the significance of what happened over the weekend in libya to the situation that we're trying to come to terms with and react to, the killing of the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens, and the attack on our consulate in benghazi? guest: there are really two points we should take away from what's going on in libya. the first is the response to the libyan government and in this case the libyan people actually attacking the terroristis are really quite encouraging, very different from the egyptian response, of course, again. the egyptian government did not denounce the attacks until a couple of days later when it was under pressure, the ruling party called for new protests in libya, very different, immediate denunciation of the attacks, the need to step up the deal esp confrontation with militants. but the second thing we have to remember about libya, this is still an instance in which a different kind of, you know, unofficial response, that is, you know, to put it mildly, a different kind of mob response, one that we like, one that was very much antiterrorist was used to fight the terrorists, and th

like an libya give up its nuclear program, negotiations have not been perfect. political will to push and recognize a deal is better than no deal is so strong that they overcome the flaws that existed and i got to a better situation and from there on, worked to improve the deals further. expecting the purpose deal to merge for either side is a guarantee for failure. >> in the very back there? one broughtised no up the u.s.-iran discussions. there was martin dempsey's comments in london. opposing the obama policy. with the obama policy in libya, there have been threats by russia toward escalation toward thermonuclear conflict. how does the iran situation fit in? why is martin dempsey coming out and oppose informal administration policy? are we pushing toward thermonuclear conflict with russia? how we avoid that? understand the question. >> let's move on then to the gentleman here. thank you. >> for those of us who have followed this whole issue, that was a brilliant presentation. this is an important question -- is a rent aware that obama cannot make a deal before the election? the whi

program cannot compare to libya's nuclear program in the past. iran is there for 2500 years are more and will be there for 25 hundred or more. -- 2500 or more. so they just take their time. they are not any rush. iran is already being treated as if they have been clear weapons by superpowers. why would they go one step further to attract that? therefore, we should not forget thatiran is already entertaining the prestige of having the capability. and, we should not forget, has the nuclear capability. if there are any questions, i will be ready to answer. thank you. >> thank you.

billion a year. it will still be in the low tens of billions. >> libya was the type of limited uses of force. there has not been a performance of libya since. an easy way to decide wharves. we would have seen some progress in syria or mali. as much as they are enforcing the act, they are not always going to be a silver bullets. >> can i add just 1.2 that? the u.a.d.'s have today are only permissible in an era environment. that is what makes these systems able to operate. many of them cannot operate in 89 environment where you have -- in a benign environment. we are going to have to increasingly shift our technology into stealthy u.a.v .'s. >> that is an example of a big topic in defense. maybe there will be these debates over how far to go with unmans systems, how much to invest in bad versus a signature program and then questions of the law. foreign policy indications of what happens to other nations that starts to play in this. these are big questions that you will not hear them talk about. every one of those phenomena points to cyber, questions on how much the president can utili

by the attacks on american diplomatic missions in libya and egypt and by the death of an american consulate workers in that gauzy it is disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks and our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks. that is mitt romney. [applause] [applause] what ever timing, wording or parsing one might want to bring up, one may want to suggest to improve on his remarks, his words had a shock effect, didn't they? they had the shock effect because they were true. when they are condemned so broadly, so almost universally among the establishment, it is likely they are true.

in the united -- we have tragically lost a united states ambassador in libya. and, in the front page of "the financial times" this morning, the headline rains that now moody's -- the headline reads that now moody's might join the s&p in downgrading the united states excellent credit rating. both of those project serious threats to the united states. one, how do we continue our diplomatic efforts, her military and economic efforts abroad, to export, to engage the world, to explain american values and to make sure that people are safe overseas. number two, how do we protect that great credit rating of "made in usa." i am an optimist. i believe that we can achieve these outcomes. the caro book that many people are reading this summer talks about great leadership. but it also quotes walter lippmann and james preston u talking about the worst congress we have ever seen in terms of a gridlock. and we overcame that. just as i am optimistic that we will overcome the gridlock on capitol hill today. two ways around that are great leadership, bipartisan leadership, democrats and republicans working tog

-mart gaddafi is gone -- muammar gaddahfi si gone and teh people of libya are free. the one side, we have a president who has led america again. what is there on the other side? the most inexperienced foreign- policy to some to run a president and vice president in decades. it is not fair to say romney does not have a position on afghanistan. he has every position. he was against setting a date for withdrawal. then he said it was right. then he left the impression that maybe it was wrong to leave so soon. he said it was tragic to leave iraq and then said it was fine. he said we should have intervened in libya sooner. then he ran away from reporters asking questions. then he said the intervention was to aggressive. then he said the world was a better place because of the intervention succeeding. talk about being for this before you are against it.
